About Rhinoplasty in Austin

Description

Many times a deviated septum may lead to a crooked nose and can even impair your breathing. A rhinoplasty in Austin by Dr. Wilder can straighten the nose and help improve breathing. The entire nose can also be reshaped to remove a hump, sculpt and define the tip and even narrow the width of the nose. Surgical repair of these nasal problems may be covered by your health insurance.

Rhinoplasty Length

Nose surgery may last 1 to 2 hours or in some cases, a little longer. The length will vary with each individual patient.

Rhinoplasty Side Effects

Temporary swelling, numbness, bruising around the eyes, nose and headaches along with bleeding and stiffness. Some Austin rhinoplasty procedures require wearing a splint or guard over the nose. Hematoma (a pooling of blood under the skin,) infection, and reaction to anesthesia are normal side effects.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

Smokers are expected to quit smoking until the nose is completely healed. Minor swelling may continue for a few months. Patients should avoid straining, bending, lifting, and wearing eye glasses immediately following the nose surgery. Back to work: 1 to 2 weeks. More strenuous activities: 2 to 3 weeks with limited exposure to sunlight.

Risks and Results

Risks of rhinoplasty include small burst blood vessels that may appear as tiny red spots on the skin’s surface, which are usually minor, but may be permanent. The results are permanent, but it may take about a year for the final results to take shape. A second, corrective procedure is rarely required. After your Austin rhinoplasty with Dr. Wilder, your nose will be free of bumps and imperfections that make it look large, therefore it will look smaller and more proportional to your face.
